The Panasonic Toughbook CF-54 uses a powerful 7th Generation i5 Intel Processor, with the latest Windows 10 OS to deliver one of the thinnest, lightest semi-rugged laptops available.
This robust laptop does it all. With a strong magnesium alloy design built all the way down to the chassis and generous 14 inch display, it’s a very capable, durable device.
Why Panasonic Toughbook?
Being able to capture, analyse and transmit information when working outdoors is a necessity for many high-pressure field work jobs. Semi-rugged devices help to keep your business productive and efficient at all times.
Panasonic’s Toughbooks are designed to work and go where no normal laptop or tablet can operate. This includes environments that are subject to extreme temperature changes, heavy vibrations and exposure to natural elements (wind, sand and liquids).
Workers need to be able to rely on these devices to keep working in tough conditions and this is where the Panasonic CF-54 excels. Toughbooks are rugged from the inside out and provided an industry-leading 3 year warranty.
Designed using magnesium alloy with a handle for increased portability, the Panasonic CF-54 has an impressive range of specs that make it a strong contender in the “Semi Rugged” category.
The device is 100% spill-resistant, has a light-up keyboard and has the option for an additional battery that can keep you working for up to 18 hours at once. The clever feature of hot-swappable batteries means that you can continue working without needing to turn off the device during operation, perfect for moments when you can’t afford to lose sensitive data because of a low battery.
Spill & Dust Resistant
Because of it’s semi-rugged capabilities, it’s important to note that the CF-54 can’t be submerged in water. It does have water protection though - IP51 protection means the device is safely protected from vertically falling drops of rain or water and is protected from dust ingress.
This laptop also meets MIL-STD-810G standards which means it can continue to work even when dropped from a height of up to 76 cm. These strict military standards also measure how well it can withstand heavy vibrations, transport shock, low temperatures, high temperatures, humidity and fungus.
Large 14” Display
The Panasonic CF-54 has one of the largest displays available in the rugged laptop market with a huge 14” screen, making this device viable alternative to a desktop computer.
The large screen and semi-rugged capabilities make this device perfect for workers in the automotive industry who regularly need to run diagnostics, as well as field workers who specialise in service and repairs.
These workers need to see large, crisp pictures of the problem at hand so they can quickly and safely fix the issue.
A Multitude of Connectivity and Storage Options
The Panasonic CF-54 has a long list of connectivity options to guarantee you can complete any task your work requires. 3 USB ports (with the option for an additional 4th) lets you charge devices, connect hard drives and other devices simultaneously.
The laptop also has an HDMI and VGA port to connect to additional monitors if needed as well as a LAN and SD slot. With 4GB RAM and 256GB SSD (Solid State Drive) you will have plenty of storage space to complete any task you encounter while out in the field.
The CF-54 also has strong WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth, optional 4G LTE and optional GPS. Antennae pass-through and optional external antenna makes it a strong option for remote work.
